***Dragon - Changes to parameters on 20th August 2021 - Take note and modify***
Please note we have made changes to our live trading account model on Aug 20th 2021, we have decreased the trailing start function from 15 pips to 10 pips, therefore the EA will start to trail when +10 pips profit achieved, prior it was 15 pips. Additionally, we have changed the end times for all 3 charts:
Change to Make: MAKE SURE ALL YOUR CHARTS ON ON 5 MINUTE TIMEFRAME
Chart 1: BoxEndTime from 09:00 to 09:05 & Trailing Start from 150 to 100
Chart 2: BoxEndTime from 10:15 to 10:05 & Trailing Start from 150 to 100
Chart 3: BoxEndTime from 12:00 to 11:45 & Trailing Start from 150 to 100
We have concluded this will help keep drawdown under better control in really narrow markets, but have little downside impact to returns. We have uploaded the new backtests to myfxbook with these new parameters, and Chart 1 shows the strongest return, followed by 2 and chart 3 lastly.
https://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/dragon-new-settings-aug-20th/314935 (Chart 1 Profit Factor 1.50)
https://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/dragon-new-settings-aug-20th/314936 (Chart 1 Profit Factor 1.41)
https://www.myfxbook.com/strategies/dragon-new-settings-aug-20th/314942 (Chart 3 Profit Factor 1.29 )
We have loaded a new LIVE account running Chart 1 only, as it clearly shows a very strong historical return, and its also an option to run chart 1 only on higher risk.
Dragon - Backtest and Set-up
Thanks for your purchase of the Dragon EXPERT Advisor. To make backtests that demonstrate profitable trading from the dragon from historical Data.
First, make sure you have ample 5 minute data in your history in MT4 terminal. Some brokers have more history in their databank that others, you can download more from dukascopy. You can also see our 3 backtests from dragon under our profile under strategies section: https://www.myfxbook.com/members/AlnoTrade
So, start by pulling in your data and open strategy tester in Mt4.
Pull up the backtester and ensure the set matches above. (if you download EA from MQL5 you will need to change points above range from 50 to 10).
This is the set for Chart 1. For Chart 2, change boxendhour to 10:05 (all other parameters remain same( and for Chart3 change to 11:45 boxendhour).
This will give you 3 independent backtests that dragon runs on. Make sure timeframe is 5 minute and you have 1 min history to get a 90% quality test.
To summarise, Chart 1 set is as follows, (chart 2 backtest change boxendhour to 10:05 and for the 3rd test boxendhour=11:45) These times are in GMT+3 broker. If you download dukascopy data they use GMT so you need to change the times.
Lots are set for testing on a €1,000 account.
